The versatile actor was undeniably entertaining as he tottered, shouted and performed minor acrobatics. Dr. Jekyll's metamorphosis into the horrible Mr. Hyde was effectively handled, though the resulting monster was more amusing than terrifying. As the melodrama reached its climax Bale vividly portrayed the madness of Hyde by throwing books and glassware about the stage with abandon and toppling a tall kitchen cabinet on to his prostrate body, only to struggle forth and die ingloriously draped across a table. The spectacle concluded with actor and audience equally exhausted. Bale's one man presentation of "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" was the second of a series sponsored i by Northwest assemblies. Inc.

Betty Kennedy, senior of Oelwein high school, merits the honor of being one student to read her tuberculosis essay over Station WHO, Friday, Dec. 18. Out to revenge the defeat administered them last Friday by the .Clear Lake Lions, the Mohawks swung their basketball machine into "high gear" and defeated their bitter interstate rival, Albert Lea, Minn., 25 to 16, in a fast and rough contest Tuesday night. "Judge," in trying to put a combination on the floor that will be able to score, has unearthed such in Harold McKenzy, Fred Stoecker, Capt. Everett Fletcher, Jack Wallace and Wayne Wood, who seem to click the best so far. •• ••• •— Because of the poor showing of the Mohawks on the free throw line last season, the squad is compelled by "Judge" Grimsley to throw 15 each afternoon before practice gets into full swing-. Each squad member must make a certain percentage of throws or he has to stay after practice until he measures up to the requirements. By so doing "Judge" hopes to increase the accuracy and percentage of free throws made in each game this year. Where's the old Mohawk pep and enthusiasm at the basketball games? Are we going to let some small school like Clear Lake and a handful of loyal Albert Lea fans outclass us in our pep at the games? No, a thousand times no! Let's see everybody out for the holiday games to show the team and Mason City fans that the school is really behind its team. How about it, gang? Holiday Sports Menu.
